Fighting for Education Justice

This past weekend, two GSA Network youth leaders and two of our staff attended the annual Statewide Gathering for the Campaign for Quality Education to strategize about our goals for education justice in California in the coming year.  GSA Network has been a proud member of the Campaign for Quality Education (CQE) for the past two years.  The weekend gathering re-energized us in our work for education justice for LGBTQ youth and communities of color and low-income communities across California.

Make Your School Better Now through an Anti-Slur Campaign

Have you wondered what it takes to make your school safer and more accepting for LGBTQ students?

Has your GSA done the Day of Silence every year and the teachers in your school still don't stop students from using anti-LGBT slurs in class?

Are you out of ideas on how your GSA can educate other students on why it's such a problem to say, "That's so gay"?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need an Anti-Slur Campaign!

But wait, what's a campaign?
